Prophetic Words for Encouragement

Listening to God

How the Lord Speaks

My name is Anna. I am in my 60's. Female. Wife, Mother and Grandmother. I have been a christian for 42 years. I have never had any leadership position in a church. I started receiving these words on January 8 2020 and they just keep coming. It has been a learning process and I am still learning. It has not come without its battles. Some 'words' you may not understand until they come to pass. Please test these words against scripture and discern for yourself.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-21 New King James Version 19. Do not quench the Spirit. 20. Do not despise prophecies. 21. Test all things; hold fast what is good.

The Lord works in many ways to bring these words about. I may feel a need to sit at the computer and log into my website builder. As I Iisten to music and sit at the keyboard with my fingers at the ready -  all of a sudden the words flow. It is like they are bursting to come out. I feel confident they are not from me because I have had a desire to write poetry/ short stories all my life - but have never been able to.

I may wake up with a word or a phrase on my mind and throughout the day I see it repeated over and over. I then know the Lord is speaking to me. I may see something on tv, I may read something and all of a sudden it is like HE is highlighting or confirming it. I then take time to discern what HE is saying.

It could be a song that moves me deeply. It could be a dream He has given me. It could be anything. A phrase in a book. A picture. There are numerous ways HE speaks. 

It could be just going about my day in quietness -  listening and waiting for Him to point something out to me. When the 'words' come - sometimes it is just a 'knowing' and I feel nothing. Sometimes my heart flutters. Sometimes I feel saturated in his beautiful presence. Sometimes he speaks so LOUD it is THAT obvious. Sometimes I have weeks and weeks without 'hearing' anything. It is all up to the Lord.

On the "WORDS' page - He shows me what picture to use with the word. HE is amazing.

He is so awesome and incredulous. Beautiful and the kindest wonderful God.
